A Toxics-Free Future

Argentina

Buenos Aires, 31 de mayo 2016. El cruce de reflexiones e información en torno a modelos de producción y consumo y las alternativas de la agroecología y basura cero en un contexto de lucha contra el cambio climático y la justicia ambiental, se dio lugar en un Seminario realizado este fin de semana en Buenos Aires.

Situación Nacional del mercurio en Argentina y Cinco Saltos: un sitio contaminado con mercurio

This project by Taller Ecologista focuses on the main sources of environmental release of mercury in Argentina based on documented sources and interviews with officials. The report focuses on a mercury contaminated site caused by releases from a chlor-alkali industry facility. This site is near the city of Cinco Saltos, Rio Negro Province, where interviews with former workers and authorities were conducted. Similarly, interviews were held with various officials in different ministries to accelerate the process of ratification of the Minamata Convention on Mercury.

On its 30-year anniversary, IPEN Participating Organization Taller Ecologista has released a new newsletter (en español).

IPENer Javier Souza Casadinho, Red de Acción en plaguicidas y sus Alternativas para América Latina (RAPAL), will participate in a debate organized by the Argentine Institute for Social Research, Economic and Public Policy on the subject of undermining natural resources and the environment. He will speak on "Los agrotóxicos y sus alternativas," and join other panelists from Greenpeace Argentina, the Assembly of Famatina, and the President of the General Audit Office.

Strengthening information to civil society to protect health from mercury exposure with a focus on vulnerable populations

Through background literature and policy research, as well as extensive interaction and outreach with various regional level stakeholders, Asociación Argentina de Médicos por el Medio Ambiente (AAMMA) produced a comprehensive report about the situation of domestic mercury management. In addition, AAMMA prepared 18 flyers to accompany the document, to facilitate the dissemination of the concepts among the different actors involved.

Zero Waste videos

In an effort to promote sustainable waste management, Taller Ecologista produced two videos dealing with issues of waste management. While one of the videos focusses on the city of Rosario and its Zero Waste ordinance, the other is a more general orientation targeted to organizations and citizen groups that seek to promote zero waste garbage plans. The objective of the videos was to promote awareness and influence changes in waste managment that are oriented toward the Zero Waste concept.
